proof.gif where did you get that info from?

I think when windows 8 comes out and they can get it to dual boot Win8 & Honeycomb that would be awesome

I'm pretty sure they were referring to the Asus eee Slider. It was originally supposed to be a honeycomb tablet, but some Intel ad leaked out a week ago, claiming it would run Windows 7.

I just can't imagine trying to do anything in an IDE or compile anything substantial on a tablet.

Good luck in your search.

Thanks for the suggestions and all of the info you guys have been posting. It is making this search much easier.

It looks like ASUS is putting out a lot of nice products. That transformer look really tempting but I still got a few more to check out before I make my final decision.

I'm lurking for info too, but Eee Pad Transformer seems the best choice, really.

The other interesting Pads with the same power are overpriced, and has 3G, wich is useless (I tether wi-fi using my phone, and can charge it with the pad).

It's awesome how the keyboard fits perfectly, while for example Xoom has a weird Keyboard (and expensive).

Have you looked into the HP slate 500? It is a nice little windows 7 tablet, and it is quick too!

Don't set your expectations very high. I don't see how a tablet can be of much use in any CS course for other than downloading and reading class notes with it.

Most universities provide a computer lab and servers where you can login to use their developer environment to complete class projects. You still need a keyboard though. If you want the ultimate developer PC for CS courses on the go, it's hard to beat a PC notebook running Linux or a MacOS portable. With those you automatically get all the standard developer tools for free, or a click away. The next best thing (for free) would be to run Cygwin (a port of GNU and other unix developer tools) under Windows. It feels clunky on Windows but it does work.

Bit of a bump eh? And thanks for the thoughts. I have been programming for a long time now and a tablet that could perform C++ compiling would be great for me. Mind you it does not matter really. As long as I got SSH access via the tablet it won't matter.

Still on the hunt for a tablet, I decided to hold off for a little while. See what comes out by the end of Q3.
